20° & SUNNY ON TUESDAY 25 APRIL IN SYDNEY
  shares
The Hilton's bright, light second level hotel bar.

When it comes to hotel bars, the vast majority of them fall into two categories — they're either martinis-on-black-marble swanky or they boast a great view and not much else. Somehow, Hilton Sydney's Glass Brasserie manages to be neither of these. Don't get us wrong, it's quite grand — the huge glass windows stretch right up to the high ceiling an impressive walled wine collection is just as tall — and you can certainly order a martini, but the place isn't unapproachable, stuffy or exclusive.

Even if you're not a hotel guest, a post-work or pre-dinner glass of wine up at the bar is a great option. If you're looking for a peaceful place to perch amidst the Vivid madness, you'll not only be able to get a Midori margarita (yes, really — it has a chilli salt rim), but you'll have a great view of the lights on the QVB too. And if you want to sit down for dinner, Luke Mangan looks after the kitchen — so you're in good hands.
